Simon Barrett Cycling on the Karakoram Highway to Kyrgyzstan tour with redspokes

Karakoram Highway to Kyrgyzstan

Simon Barrett from Edinburgh, UK rates our Karakoram Highway to Kyrgyzstan cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

"Groups can be hit or miss but I think we all hit it off on our 2 day bus journey between Islamabad and Gilgit. In fact this was a great start to the adventure and made me feel that we were truly travelling the Karakorum Highway. Flying this part of it would have felt like cheating. The scenery throughout was incredible and although I have seen many photos of the region the landscape exceeded all my expectations. I particularly remember stopping for some time just south of Passu to take photos of the group with the Passu Cathedrals as a back drop. The view was stunning. After a while we remounted our bikes and set off again, only to be forced to stop again within 100m as we swung round the next bend in the road and the immense Passu Glacier came into view. We were all gobsmacked and whooped with joy and amazement. Another memorable feature of the trip was the wonderful hospitality of the people in Pakistan. Twice we were feted in villages that we visited and even the most hardened of us were moved by the speeches and gestures of welcome. In both Pakistan and Kyrgyzstan our guides were very special people; filled with warmth, energy and a desire to make our trip a success. "

For many years i had wanted to cycle across the Karakorum Highway and this trip exceeded all my expectations! I thought reaching the Khunjarab Pass (which was amazing) would be the highlight of my trip, but my everlasting memories will be of the warmth and friendliness of the people in Chira and the camaraderie and support of the others on the tour especially when cycling/facilities were challenging!

I thought the trip was awesome! A real challenge physically (and psychologically too at times) but that was what I wanted when I embarked on the trip.

I had never been on a redspokes tour before and so I didn't really know what to expect. The organisation before the trip was excellent and Bryony in the office showed endless patience with all my naïve questions! Once in La Paz the tour guides gave me complete confidence in the trip we were undertaking and although I knew it could be a challenge, I felt very supported and well prepared. 

The group I was with were a fantastic bunch of people who I feel privileged to have met. I believe that was one of the key things that made the trip so fantastic '“ especially when unavoidable things like illness strike, the support and encouragement of like-minded people is awesome. From what I can gather, redspokes folks are always pretty cool by definition!

I loved the variety of the adventures we had along the way. Bolivia and Peru were such vastly different countries and every day gave us new insights into the fascinating cultures and amazing sights to be seen. I know I would never have been able to see so much travelling any other way than on two wheels '“ it was definitely the way to go.

I would definitely do a redspokes tour again and I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone '“ even if they had never done a trip like that before. Do a bit of training beforehand though'¦ I was glad I put some hours in on the bike for a couple of months before I went. Although you don't need to be super-fit or super-human, you will get more out of the tour if you are fit enough to relax about the demands of the ride and cycle every last mile if you can (you didn't sign up to sit in a minibus after all!)

Christine Jackson  Cycling on the Peru & Bolivia  tour with redspokes

Christine Jackson  from Isle of Wight, England rates our Peru & Bolivia  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

This was my fourth redspokes tour and it totally lived up to my expectations yet again! A magical 17 days of stunning scenery, challenging and varied biking, and amazing cultural experiences, culminating in a visit to the breathtaking Machu Picchu.

It was so rewarding to be able to explore the more remote areas of Bolivia and Peru, with a delightful group of like-minded cyclists and get a real insight into life in these beautifully diverse countries. By the end of our third day in La Paz we had been treated to the local fireworks display, attended a evening function with a well known Bolivian musician and participated in the local street carnival, all superb extras that we just weren't expecting!

The organisation was excellent and it was difficult to believe that this was the first time the trip had run. Even the political strikes around Cusco and an enforced change of route didn't mar the group's cycling, due in no small part to the fantastic support and expertise of Dermot (trip leader), our local guide Eduardo, and his support crew of Alex and Bernabe. Nothing was too much trouble for them. They all looked after us brilliantly and were always happy to answer our endless questions! I now know the difference between a llama and an alpaca and due to Bernabe's never ending patience my Spanish continues to improve!

Can't wait for my fifth adventure with redspokes!

A fantastic support team! Dermot, Eduardo, Barnaby, Alex......what a great job you did. Endless patience, kindness and helpfulness. Outstanding. I thought the people on the tour were great. It was also small enough for us all to gel and be ' a group', that worked well for me. The trip was excellent value for money. There was always plenty to eat (except on the Chicken Feet Soup night!!), I enjoyed the roadside eateries, and the local restaurants. The accommodation was always the best of what was available. The itinerary was good.......the cycling was adventurous, fun and challenging. The scenery was stunning. It was a great way to see Peru, we got to see lots of things you wouldn't see on a usual tour. I think a highlight for me was visiting the local villages up in the mountain on their market day...I found the cycling very tough - the hardest of the whole trip, but it was great to visit these places and a great way to see them.I so enjoyed the trip and that was largely down to you guys who helped get me over those tricky early days. I'm so glad you didn't let me duck out in La Paz!!
